    Re: Leave you SEAT CUSHIONS in the car....



    i got turned away from M&T 2 years ago for having a small camera bag with a camera inside of it taking up all of the space. i rolled my eyes at the guy and then walked 20 feet down to the next security line and got right in. hopefully, at least this puts them all on the same page.

    Agreed! Some of these people are just ridiculous. They take so much stuff for a three hour game. Give it a rest. I am tired of waiting behind them in line.

    I know one guy that takes a backpack to every game with the same stuff no matter the weather... Rain gear, sweaters, suntan lotion (good idea), binoculars, etc, etc, including a book. Really, you need to take a book to a Ravens game! He is a friend of a friend and I have been to 90-degree plus games with him and have told him to just leave his backpack and he looks at me like I am insane. Then, I end up having to wait for him while he gets his "man purse" checked getting through the gate.
    Everybody's talkin' at me; I don't hear a word they're saying; Only the echoes of my mind

    I'm going where the sun keeps shining; Thru' the pouring rain; Going where the weather suits my clothes

    Banking off of the North East winds; Sailing on a summer breeze; And skipping over the ocean like a stone

    I see this quote misapplied all the time, and it always makes me sad.

    Irrespective of whether the new rules are reasonable or not, taking a seat cushion to a football game is simply NOT an "essential liberty".

    I miss the days when you could bring a cooler full of beer to an O's game, but I haven't sacrificed any of my inalienable rights or freedoms because I accept that this is no longer allowed.

    Yep... leaving my bag of crap at home and submitting to a pat down is hardly giving up rights. lol.

    Oh I accept that it is no longer allowed and yes I too remember bringing a cooler full of beer into O's games.However we will have to disagree whether or not the quote is misapplied. Yes in the grand scheme of things a cushion is small and insignificant, and yes I agree that a backpack full of shit is not necessary to attend a football game. I agree that these are not "essential liberties" but small things. When people are singled out for their beliefs or groups start tracking every move that you make...oh wait!

    I apologize I had no intention of turning this into a political discussion but the sheer stupidity of this rule and others for the safety that they can not provide just disgusts me

    I think what he's saying is you're misapplying the quote to a private entity. The quote was originally applied to the government. It has no bearing and has nothing to do with security at a sporting event.

    There's no right to take whatever you want to a football game. You cannot infringe on a right you never had in the first place.

    And yes, let's leave out the political commentary.

    and you've managed to take this out of context unless the NFL has been taken over by the government...this quote deals with your rights vis-a-vis the government's power...{smdh}

    don't like the rules, don't buy a ticket...

    One well-placed bomb by the Unitas statue 20 minutes before kick-off would do as much or more damage than anything inside the stadium.
    So would sarin gas in the subway, but that's not the focus point for security in this case.

    Re: Leave you SEAT CUSHIONS in the car....

    I've only been to a couple of games (courtesy of a generous friend) & I pay no attention to concessions & such, but...

    I wonder how long it'll be before someone comes up with the idea of renting out seat cushions inside the stadium--as in charge $5 plus $10 deposit, either bring 'em back to reclaim deposit or take 'em home as souvenirs.

    --Mmm, that wouldn't work, you'd have jerks stealing the cushions to reclaim the deposit. Maybe just sell them for waaaay too much for one-time in-house use & take-home souvenirs...?

    For all those whose tush is less than plush, you probably need something that's inflatable like some of the travel pillows on the market but folds up flat to fit in your pocket.

    Ha, It's my own damn fault. I must've bought her 10,000 bacon/cheeseburgers, pepperoni pizzas, scrambled eggs/waffles with sausage and home fried potatoes, New York strip steaks with sour cream dripping off a baked potato, etc. Hmmm, don't remember any salads though (?) ... Bc

    I'm on the last row of the lower section. We all sit on the back of our seats. Seat cushions are necessary. And it acts as a booster seat.
    I hope something can be worked out.

    Re: Leave you SEAT CUSHIONS in the car....

    How about one person goes through the gate while another waits by the iron fencing surrounding the stadium to pass all of the contraband to the first person inside? Those security checkpoints are ridiculous.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
    Ridiculous statement. Everyone gives up some amount of liberty for better security. Ever try to walk out a terminal at BWI?

    No one is compelling you to attend the games.

    NFL is a private enterprise, free from Govt interference as to how much security the NFL wishes to supply. The NFL spends millions annually on security. NFL games are likely a juicy target for terrorists. The greater the level of security, the lesser the chance of a Boston Marathon type event. Nothing is fool-proof, however. I have a lot more confidence in the NFL's security decision-makers than someone on an internet message board who likely has no security training or experience.

    I'm not thrilled about further restrictions on what I can bring in. I like having miniatures stuck in my socks, sandwiches, seat cushions, blankets, and noise-makers. I'll have to give some or all up now. BFD -- it sure beats watching the games on TV.
